It Is I

Lean on me

It is I who whispers to you,
in the silence of your heart
urging your feet to gently move

I, who loves you intimately
from beginning to end
a love I do not need to prove

It is I who is there
and hears your silent pleas
the ones that hurt the most
and bring you to your knees

And, it is I
who reaches out
and carries you when you fall

I, who listens patiently
there at all times
responding to your call

It is I who you blame
when things take a turn
and I, you walk away from
when your bridges burn

Yet, it is I who welcomes you back
each and every time
no matter how long you’ve been gone

I who will forgive and redeem
all the mistakes made
come the breaking of the new dawn

For it is I who made you
and you, my child, are mine
it is an everlasting embrace
an eternal love divine

It is I who stands by you always
I who will never leave
I who fully understand

And, it is I waiting here
patiently, just for you
to reach out and take my hand

This will not change
as the years keep rolling by
because I am the reason for it all
now and always, it is I.
